Brooks offers readers a succinct, lively and robust introduction to the subject of organisational behaviour.
While aiming to encourage and promote the critical examination of the theory of organisational behaviour, this book also seeks to enable students to interpret and deal with real organisational problems. This new edition has major changes to the text to embrace international contexts and the modern realities of OB. It has proved a popular student choice because it combines relative brevity with thorough coverage and plentiful real-world examples.
Popular features for today's organisational behaviour course include:
* More prominent organisational theory coverage - this key topic has been moved forward to provide students with an overview of the different ways OB can be looked at early on in the book.
* More coverage of modern communications technologies, cross cultural management, generational change and the gig economy.
* New and updated case studies and 'Managerial Implications' boxes help to broaden students' knowledge and understanding of OB in real organisations.
* 'Illustration in Film' boxes illustrate key ideas through famous films such as 12 Angry Men and The Devil Wears Prada.
